What People Are Talking About

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

If you've been on Facebook recently, there's no doubt in my mind that you've seen at least one video of a friend, acquaintance, or otherwise, dousing his or herself with a bucket of ice water, before promptly calling out some of their friends to do the same. It's all in an attempt to raise awareness and donations for ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gerig's Disease. The premise: those are tagged are asked to donate a sum of money (typically, $100) to ALS or film themselves pouring a bucket of ice-cold water on themselves. In most cases, people have opted to do both. Even celebrities and public figures have gotten in the challenge, including Justin Timberlake (video above), Mark Zuckerberg, the cast of "Grey's Anatomy," and Conan O'Brien. According to the ALS website, these donations have helped raise more than $3 million in additional donations for this time period, which is pretty awesome.

Snoop Dogg and Brandy/Ray J

Most are privy to the fact that singers Brandy and Ray J are siblings — but who knew they were also first cousins with Snoop Dogg (AKA Snoop Lion)?

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift made headlines for two reasons this week: first, because she stopped by Boston Children's Hospital to make a special visit to an adorable 5-year-old named Jordan. Together, they sang along to "We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together" for a very sweet moment. If that wasn't enough, Swift started dropping clues about her new music. It started on Monday with a cryptic Instagram video of her hitting the number '18' six times while in an elevator. Then she released two more hints: a screenshot of a phone (a picture that includes her cat, Olivia, a camera, and some artwork), as well as this image referencing Yahoo.com. So what is it, exactly? No one knows. But hopefully something will be revealed soon!

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing? (A Complete Guide)

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing

It's a question many have been wondering, especially since the elevator incident: are Jay Z and Beyonce splitting up? Here, I'll break down everything surrounding the billionaire couple, rumors, speculation, and fans included, so you can become the resident Jay Z and Beyonce expert at your next family party/company event/watercooler conversation.

The Elevator Incident

This is really what started the whole 'Jay/Bey are done' rumors. It happened back in May, when some security footage leaked from a Met Gala after-party. There's no audio in the video, but it clearly showed Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange (Beyonce's sister) on an elevator. Solange was yelling, and then she went after Jay Z. Theories behind why the bizarre 'incident' took place include:

1.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna.

2.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rachel Roy.

3.) Jay Z was with Rachel Roy back in the day, and bragged about it the night of the Met Gala.

4.) Jay Z disrespected Beyonce in some way, cheating or otherwise, and Solange was sticking up for her.

5.) Solange's behavior that night is normal for her.

6.) Blue Ivy is actually Solange's daughter and now she wants custody?

7.) Solange's kid is actually Jay Z's and she's tired of hiding it?

8.) Solange and Jay Z were arguing over something Illuminati-related?

As you can see, things start to get weird, fast. This doesn't even include the joke theories! That said, all we officially know is what the three of them have said — essentially nothing.

Yet that hasn't stopped rumors from circulating that Jay Z and Beyonce are definitely, probably, maybe going to break up, separate, renew their vows, have another kid, or divorce soon, in the future, or never.

Top 5 Couples in Country Music

Best Country Couples

Celebrity couples just make sense, right? They "get" one another. They get what it's like to be adored. They get what it's like to lack privacy. They get what it's like to roll around in money (I'm assuming). There's an added layer of compatibility when the two celebrities are not just famous, but come from the same industry. So these five country couples just make sense.

Johnny Cash + June Carter

Johnny Cash and June Carter are kind of the quintessential country couple. They first met in 1956 when they were both part of the Opry company; by the 1960s, Cash and Carter were regularly performing together. In 1968, Cash proposed, and the two were married a month later. The couple was married for 35 years, and they were the subject of the 2005 film "Walk the Line." During their professional career, Cash and Carter also won prestigious awards for their duets "Jackson" and "If I Were a Carpenter."
